Reach beyond your own personal experience and knowledge and rise faster and farther with this “engaging and practical” leadership guide (Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People). Being an effective leader means making decisions. But many of those decisions may pertain to situations or information you aren’t be familiar with. What is a leader to do then? You have to make choices about the future for yourself, your team, and your organization. You need to get your team aligned in the same direction while building key relationships both internally and externally. And, you have to do all this while you maintain your sanity among competing demands. Leadership expert Dave Jennings doesn’t ask you to change your leadership skill set. He invites you to change your mind set about how you approach life when you are in over your head—sometimes way over your head. Catapulted is a “great read” that will provide you with the tools to succeed in situations that go beyond your comfort zone. Get ready to fly (Gary Bowen, chief financial officer, OGIO International).
